The Tax Club is a program that allows residents of the City of Bath spread out their property tax bill in twelve (12) monthly installments instead of a single payment. The program is only available on a taxpayer's primary residence and is not available on commercial, industrial, personal or rental properties.
The Council approves an order each year that reads in part:
"Be it order by the City Council of the City of Bath, Maine as follows: That the Finance Director, serving as the appointed Treasurer and Tax Collector, be authorized and empowered to continue a tax payment plan known as the "Bath Tax Club", making payments in a method, frequency, and manner set by, and in accordance with, the rules of said Tax Club as determined by the Finance Director..."
Tax Club enrollment forms are available in July of each tax year in the Treasurer's Office and are due by August 15th. You must be current on your taxes and the property must be your primary residence in order to be eligible.
If you have questions about this program, please contact the Treasurer’s Office at (207) 443-8340.
